AFC Urgent Care Athens, TN: Your Hometown Resource for Quality Care

Over the past few years, the healthcare industry has experienced a great upheaval. With all of the changes, restrictions and social distancing, many processes were changed or even halted.

The pandemic’s emergency status is set to expire when May arrives, so many of these processes will go back to normal. These changes will affect telemedicine and virtual visits across the entire country.

But don’t worry, we aren’t going anywhere. An in-person visit to AFC Urgent Care Athens, TN will still continue to be the best answer for your injury or illness concerns, and we explain why below.

Why Should I Come to AFC in Person?

Picture this: You wake up and your throat feels like it is on fire and your head is pounding in a way that you haven’t felt before. You would probably want to find relief and the reason for these symptoms as quickly as possible! When you stop by our center, we ensure you are seen quickly by one of our highly knowledgeable medical providers. We are able to visually inspect the back of your throat and perform a physical evaluation.

If you were to just hop on a screen and meet with someone online, chances are he or she won’t be able to evaluate you the way you deserve. Without being able to see your symptoms in person, something might get missed!

Benefits of an In-Person Examination

  • Access to further testing
  • Better patient/provider relationships
  • Accurate and comprehensive diagnosis
  • Personal touch

Will an In-Person Visit Help Me Feel Better Faster?

While virtual visits are an effective way of providing care in some circumstances, they aren’t a sustainable way for comprehensive patient care. If we can only care for you through a screen, we can’t investigate any issues further or develop a relationship with our patients.

If you come to us with symptoms of illness or a troublesome injury, we can order X-rays, blood work and a series of rapid tests to help us determine what you are suffering from. This is unique to an in-person visit! Our goal is to care for you to the very best of our ability, and an in-person visit will help us do just that.
